Forum: etree Subject: a little help please!

First, Let me say this is the most incredible website. I've been downloadings shows for months now, and have no problem converting to mp3 to load into my portable player.
The little problem I am having is when I convert flac or lossless into mp3 and load them into my player, I have to manually load all the info such as band name, track name, etc. Is there a way so that when I convert to mp3 I can also convert all the text with it?
Thanks again, to all those that run this thing. This is awesome!

the problem is that the things you are talking about (band name, song name, etc..) is an id3 tag.. shn doens't store that info and while flac can store that info in headers, a lot of people don't enter it.. sorry! but if someone does enter the info into their .flac files before uploading, then the meta data should make the info show up on the mp3s... (i think!) hope that helps!

When I download the shows that are available in mp3, I don't have any problem. It's when I convert to mp3 from flac or lossless. It comes up like dso040417d1t01.shn when I load it into my player, and then I have to manually change it to the name of the song. I was just wondering if there was a way around this.
Thanks again. All you guys are great!
